Be A Santa To A Senior

November 13 @ 10:00 am - December 10 @ 6:00 pm

Cape Cod Craft Beer

Cape Cod Councils on Aging provide Home Instead Senior Care the first names of 230-240 lonely or financially challenged older adults in our community, with gift ideas for each senior. The above-named merchants and senior living communities set up a Christmas tree and poster in their lobby from November 13th to December 10th.  The senior’s first name and gift idea is printed on an ornament and hung on the Christmas tree. Residents or customers pull an ornament from the tree, purchase a gift from the ideas listed and return both to the tree in a holiday gift bag.

Home Instead Senior Care collects the gifts by Monday December 10, 2018  (the last collection day). Gifts are distributed to senior centers in time for a Council on Aging friendly visitor to deliver their gifts by Christmas.

Be A Santa To A Senior is a partnership of Cape Councils on Aging, Home Instead Senior Care and community tree participants: Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis, Eastern Banks in Falmouth, Hyannis, Marstons Mills, Mashpee and Sandwich, the Oyster Island Emporium in Osterville, Good Friends Café in West Dennis, New Angle Designs in Yarmouthport, the senior living community of Decatur House, Scenic Roots in Sandwich and Walgreens in South Yarmouth and Mashpee.
